Join us for another team-up of Assorted Table and Orrman's Cheese Shop. You'll sample 5 wines expertly paired with 5 kinds of cheese during a 90 minute presentation featuring a speaker from each shop. Aside from learning the science behind wine & food pairing, you will get to nerd out with your hosts!

We ask that guests arrive 10 minutes prior to the tasting start time to grab your seat and settle in before we start. Advance ticket purchase is required to attend. This event is for ages 21+ only.


Orrman’s Cheese Shop is a full-service cheese shop founded by Rachel Klebaur and her husband, Jose Espinosa. One might say these two were destined to become cheese people. The couple met in culinary school in New York City and have spent the last two decades carving a path that would equip them with the knowledge, passion, and utmost dedication to culinary craft and the wide world of cheese.


Assorted Table Wine & Shop was founded in 2012 by Joshua Villapando. The shop prides itself on an eclectic selection & quirky extras where you’ll find wines from all corners of the world, Sake, beer, collectibles, action figures, bicycles, art prints….They pack as much as possible into the “walk-in closet” sized shop in The Market at 7th St (formerly 7th St Public Market)!


The StrEAT Smarts Sessions are a new addition to the 2023 Charlotte StrEATs Festival, part of Charlotte SHOUT! These intimate seminars give you the opportunity to learn from experts on a variety of culinary subjects. These sessions will take place from April 1-14th and will lead up to the big StrEATs weekend!
